Trump appointed Lynne Patton to run HUD -- she'll be in charge of billions of dollars in funds that oversees the federal housing programs for New York.
What are her credentials?
- Well, she has zero housing experience.
- She claims a law degree from Quinnipiac University School of Law in Connecticut, but the school's registrar, Jim Benson, said Patton attended for two semesters but did not graduate.
- She listed Yale as a school she attended in her LinkedIn account, but there are no documents that attach her to the school.
- Her biggest win is for planning Eric Trump's wedding -- she planned it.
Patton’s connection with Trump dates back to 2009, when she began serving as the family’s event planner "responsible for organizing, executing and assisting with upscale events and celebrity golf tournaments,”}"2 her LinkedIn profile says. It also says she “handle(s) celebrity talent acquisition for various marketing projects, philanthropic events and golf tournaments."
Patton begins her job on July 5 as head of the biggest HUD regional office in the U.S., again in charge of billions in cash to public housing authorities as well as tens of thousands of rental vouchers and block grants that fund housing inspections, and senior citizen programs.
